It's never too early to start planning for Homecoming & Family Weekend! Mark your calendars now for a full weekend of festive activities for alumni and parents as well as current and prospective students.
Special events will feature a celebration of LeTourneau Athetics and reunions for both undergraduate and graduate program Psychology alumni. Annual events open to all attendees include Hootenanny (and the Hootenanny Tailgate!), the Picnic at the Pond, the Inter-Society Rope Pull and Cardboard & Duct Tape Boat Races and the Blue & Gold and Athletic Hall of Fame Banquet. The YellowJacket Track & Field team will also host a new 5K run/walk on Saturday morning.
Annual Alumni Events
Great Texas Balloon Race
(Each July in Longview, Texas)
Each year, LeTourneau's alumni team receives tickets to the Great Texas Balloon Race's Ballon Glow event. Tickets are limited and first-come, first-served.
New in 2017, the alumni team distributed tickets during the annual Special Shapes Inflations morning event. LeTourneau hosted "Coco the Clown" beside the Belcher Center and provided doughnuts & coffee for alums and families.
EAA AirVenture Alumni Dinner
(Each July in Oshkosh, WI)
Alumni participating in (or viewing!) EAA AirVenture events are invited to an informal dinner each year. We love reconnecting with so many of our aviation alumni and families and the crowd seems to grow every single year!
LETU also mans a booth throughout the week and we love alums and families to come meet current students & faculty and share their own updates. We hope to see even more LeTourneau alumni in 2018!
